Vasilii Rozanov and the Creation : The Edenic Vision and the Rejection of Eschatology Hardback
by ADAM URE
This book provides the first detailed study in English of the relgious philosophy of Vasilii Rozanov, one of the most influential and controversial thinkers of Russias Silver Age.
It examines his subversion of traditional Russian Orthodoxy, including his reverence for the Creation, his focus on the family, and his worship of sex.Rozanov is one of the towering figures of Russian culture, a major influence on thinkers and writers such as Bakhtin, Maiakovskii, and Mandelshtam, as well as many European writers.
He critiqued Orthodox theology, and wrote extensively on philosophy, literature, and politics, and helped reform marriage and divorce laws.His enormous contribution to Russian thought has been largely neglected, and much of his work has been misunderstood.
Ure addresses this by examining the basis of Rozanovs religious philosophy, the Creation of the Earth and the Book of Genesis.
